Candace Cameron Bure is reflecting on backlash she obtained from Christian followers who took concern with a photograph of husband Valeri Bure cupping the actress’ breast on Instagram.
The “Fuller House” star, 44, mentioned the September incident on the “Confessions of a Crappy Christian” podcast, the place she revealed that they determined to take photographs shortly after the couple had lunch with their newly-engaged son, Lev.
“At the very end of it, he had his arm draped around my shoulder, and then the very last picture he grabbed my boob,” she stated. “And I said, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so funny, can I please post this?’”
While followers initially laughed off the picture with Bure, she was quickly met with critics deeming the pic “inappropriate” coming from a Christian girl.
“’Oh that’s so inappropriate that you posted that as a Christian. You should be more modest,’” she stated of some of the feedback she obtained. “I’ve been married for 24 years. I’m a Christian, my husband’s a Christian and I’m really proud that we’ve managed to stay married for 24 years. And the fact that we have fun and we flirt together, this is part of what makes our marriage work. This is something to be celebrated as a Christian.”
“Sex doesn’t stop once you get married,” she continued. “Sex is the blessing of marriage and I hate when Christians are like, no, you have to pretend like you’ve never had sex, and we only know that you’ve had sex three times because you’ve had three children. If we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage.”
The interview echos Bure’s preliminary protection of the pic, which she shared on Instagram shortly after being known as out by followers.
“For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband. We have so much fun together,” she stated on the time.
“He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does,” she continued. “This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about.”
